THE WORKOUT: Ellen Barrett Live Fusion Floor Workout (Buff Girl Fitness, $15)
REVIEWED BY: Sophia
WHO CAN DO THIS: Anyone—provided beginners don’t expect to complete all reps of all movements. It’s not as easy as you might imagine.
Lots of these exercises are done leaning on one or both hands. Pay particular attention to Ellen’s instructions about distributing your weight across your entire hand so you don’t end up with wrist pain.
THE SWEAT FACTOR: Keep up with Ellen—who is cheerful and friendly without being frenetic—and you should sweat.
BUT IS IT FUN? The novelty makes it fun.
WHEN IT'S OVER: You might be surprised by how well worked out you feel.
GEAR AND APPAREL: A mat.
FINAL WORD: Having adopted a standing desk about a year ago, I’m ready to sit down by the end of the day, when I usually work out. This DVD will probably get a lot of use.
